Great article! Notebooks are my biggest weakness, I have way too many. Lined ones for writing, gridded ones for drawing typography, and blank ones for normal fun drawing. I'm a sucker for cute designs and nice paper. BUT, I will never, ever get rid of them (except maybe as a gift) because I love them all and eventually they'll get filled.

This post has some nice ideas! The point about removing friction is especially helpful.

The babyish argument about the pillow is a nice touch too, HA! Loosen up children.

This is really cool. I'm glad the Kickstarter raised enough for this to happen.

The fabric seems a little odd to me (which could be personal taste), but WOW! That's impressive.

I love this style, but I know I could never live with a ton of darkness. If I don't keep things bright and airy, my mind starts feeling cluttered. I'm also not elegant enough, haha.

Oh wow, I'm loving those countertops. That sink is gorgeous too, especially the legs. Not big on how dark it is or the lower open shelving, but to each their own! It seems much more comfortable than the before.

I love living on the second floor of my building. I'm high enough up to stare down at people and watch them like a huge creep, and I don't have too many stairs.

Haha, this article is brilliant. These are the exact posters they sell at every single college poster sale. Tacky as it is, I have an absinthe poster. I have had absinthe twice in my life. It was pretty OK.

All my other art is perfect. I hoard images I like (paintings, bands, outer space, etc), print them out, and hang them on my wall. This is still acceptable because I am an early 20something in my first real apartment and people will only judge me a little.

Get Happier at Home: Take Time to Notice Small Pleasures

This is way TMI, but it's important to me and I have no shame ever: My favorite thing about my apartment is being able to look out the window and see the psychiatric hospital. It means a lot to me because I've had issues with depression and anxiety and blablabla, and I wasn't that far off from being there a few years ago. It makes me think about how far I have come since then, and how much better I feel now. And that helps me appreciate the fact I'm not dead.

Smaller less TMI things: I like hearing the train go by, I like my one window because it's huge and lets in tons of light, and I like being able to just roll out of bed and do things since everything is so close by.

I totally get the frustration of this. I've been living in my own apartment for a year, and I still have no sofa/loveseat/futon because I'm too intimidated by the prices. I've been eyeballing one at Target, but it's tricky because I'm terribly cheap and refuse to spend over $100 on anything unless I'm in love with it. This is still socially acceptable because I'm a student. goodwill/craigslist 4 life or until I get bedbugs xoxoxox

You guys are so silly. Of course none of these are foolproof, and it's not like AT just revealed some big secret hiding spot for valuables. People have been hiding money in old mayonnaise jars forever. And even though a lot of thieves check these places, they're still probably going to start opening drawers and cabinets before they start going through your food and tampons. These are small suggestions to use in addition to whatever you're already doing, not alternatives to locking the door.

ANYWAY... I like these ideas. I have a studio apartment, so there aren't many hiding spots. It's nice to have a few extra ones. These are also nice for hiding things from friends/relatives that you may not want them to see. Like sex toys, prescriptions, and your ~*secret journal*~ or something.
